Montbrio Belvedere hospitality exchange
Montbrio Belvedere B&b volunteer project – We are a Dutch couple that 10 years ago changed its hectic life in the Netherlands to the rural area of Cambrils, Costa Dorada in Spain. We renovated an old Catalan farmhouse and created an ECO-friendly B&B. Next to hosting our guest, we have a 16-hectare ECO olive yard, that requires a lot of attention. We are looking for volunteers that can help us with the maintenance of the B&B, its huge garden and the olive trees. A special project for the coming months is to renew our vegetable garden and reduce the amount of grass in the garden for the guests, in order to make the garden more sustainable and less water-dependent. Another special project is to create 2 beautiful “rooms” between the olive trees, in renovated caravans.
We offer free food & accommodation in our B&B, the use of the kitchen and the use of a bike, and free coffee and tea, in return for 25 hours of work per week.

Any Spanish language school nearby?
Hi! I am part of a group of 13 from a small high school in the US. (10 students and 3 adults). We are going to be in Spain from early February to mid February. We are looking for places that we could volunteer at on our trip, and you guys look like a strong option. Our group ages range from 14 to mid 40.
